Fitting Into My Bridesmaid Dress

Last wedding related post for now!

Listen, I was going to fit into "a" dress, even if I had to call and beg the manufacturer to overnight me a larger size to the tune of an insane amount of money.

Fortunately, that wasn't the case, and with a little magic (i.e. a seamstress) and some weight loss (thanks to a stomach bug that caused me to lose 20 pounds in two days), the one I ordered worked just fine. So many people asked me how on earth I ordered a dress while pregnant and had it come so close to actually fitting well. I was measured for the dress at 5 or 6 months along, and since I wasn't nursing, I figured it would be fairly close. I was right.

But I was sweating it, from the time I got home from the hospital with the miss priss!

Somehow I managed to go the whole weekend without getting a picture taken with the bride, outside of her professional pics. I didn't even get a pic with our other college roommate who lives in Florida, thus it is a rare treat to hang out with her!

After realizing about three quarters of the way through the reception that I didn't have a picture of us, I dragged her into the photo booth. Let it be said that I am a terrible photo booth participant. I can never think of anything cute to do, so I already know how lame I look.

And in the top strip, try explaining a photo booth on the fly to a 2 year old. He's never been around a camera that someone wasn't holding. But by the end, he was in good spirits! Such a sweetie.


  1. What a fun idea! I keep seeing all these great things I wish we'd had at our wedding. I'm thinking a do-over (to the same fellow, of course) might be in order one day. :)

  2. You can feel free to delete this comment if I'm overstepping my bounds but I swear I thought three things when I saw your pictures:

    1) That little boy is GORGEOUS.
    2) Dark teal is great on you.
    3) That dress would soooo not work if you were nursing. It looks like it fits great though, but I'm really so sorry about the means you had to endure.

  3. I really love your blog.. Excellent colors & theme.
    Did you build this site yourself? Please reply back as I'm trying to create my own personal blog and would like to learn where you got this from or what the theme is named. Thank you!
